"Ask an Indian..." while not politically correct as an identification of indigenous people to this continent it begins to open a line of communication.
This event and subsequent "Ask an Indian..." events, is designed to answer questions from the general public that they may have about indigenous peoples of America or 'Native Americans.' As people who are indigenous to this land, there are many false representations of who we are and how we are depicted in history. This conversation will allow a broader audience to experience authentic representations of ourselves.
We are coordinating efforts with UCLA and Bellermine University in Kentucky to broadcast the event to them. We will have blog access available during the event and questions from the audience other than those present on site will be answered. We are very excited about this unprecedented activity and plan to make it a quarterly event for both adults and youth.
Please forward this information and flyer to those whom may also be interested in this thought and conversation invoking event.....
Panelists include working professionals in the areas of education, law enforcement, policy development, legislative affairs and health.
